Joan Frances Cochrane (nee Dale)

June 22, 1923-Sept 26, 2013

Our mother Joan Cochrane died peacefully with her family by her side on September 26, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband Jack Cochrane in 1999 and her brother Ron in 1989. She leaves to mourn her children Jean (Jim) and Don (Joanne), her beloved grandchildren Stephanie, Andrea (Alex), Rory, Charlie and Andy, her brother Jack (Jean), and cousins Barbara, Jack, Grit, Betty and John. Joan was born in New Westminster to Harry and Violet Dale in 1923 and grew up on a farm in Hatzic Prairie. She taught in a one room school house there before moving to Ocean Falls where she met and married Jack; they moved to Campbell River in 1958. Joan was a kind and warm hearted person with a delightful smile. She loved children and taught in a daycare for many years. Joan also loved her friends in Beta Sigma Phi. She enjoyed painting and became very proficient. Later she was very happy attending the Adult Care Centre. We are grateful for the compassionate care provided by James Bay Care Center in Victoria over the past few years. A memorial service will be held on October 3 at 2pm at St. Peters Anglican Church, 228 S Dogwood St. in Campbell River. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Campbell River and District Adult Care Society would be very much appreciated.
